between high-quality physical education and improvements in other areas of education such as literacy and numeracy.
Because of the many positive impacts that physical activity has on students—not only as young people but also as adults—this government is determined to ensure that quality physical education programs are offered across all ACT public schools. The launch of the Children’s Physical Activity Foundation today, with the support of the John James Memorial Foundation, the support of a range of major sport and recreation organisations and the support of an Olympian in Adam Pine will see this initiative flourish. I look forward to myself participating in the minister’s physical activity challenge through terms 2 and term 3 and I would encourage all members, and all members of the community, to get 60 minutes of physical activity in every day. Your health will improve. Sixty minutes a day: do it.
Mr Stanhope: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.
Supplementary answer to question without notice
ACT Policing—roster system
MR CORBELL: During question time today I indicated that the government has provided funding for an additional 107 new police. I am advised that the correct figure is actually 109. This means that since 2001 the Stanhope Labor government has provided funding for an additional 122 extra police.
